Garden Coach

The YKFM is seeking an individual confident in gardening who will network with and provide support to community gardeners. This is a new project this year, which aims to increase the amount of produce grown in Yellowknife, and in turn increase the bounty available at Tuesday Markets through the Harvesters' Table. 

The Garden Coach initiative grew out of a comment we have heard regularly from market patrons interested in participating in the Harvesters Table. We are told that Yellowknifers tend to plant a reduced garden when they have summer vacations planned. There is an opportunity to expand what people grow in their gardens by offering gardening support while gardeners plan their garden and maintenance while on holiday. In exchange for the coaching and support, we will harvest an agreed upon quantity of produce for sale through the Harvesters Table and the Farmers Market.
